Is anyone offering the antique edge on a #8 lwb?
***The official Alden thread *** - Page 4461
Is there any way to make the thread more easily readable, like inserting a FAQ right after the first page? I am not a stickler for styleforum rules or best practices, but we get certain questions (how do Barrie shoes vs boots fit, where can I find cigar captoe boots or color 8 antique longwings, etc) seemingly multiple times a day. For example, it seems like dozens of posters own the Color 8 Antique Longwing from Leffot and have posted their examples, yet people still don't know where to find this shoe. There are so many posts in the thread that it may not be easy to find answers by searching.
BTW, Does anyone know where I can get replacement laces for my Indys?
I don't really blame readers for this issue - the thread moves very fast, and Alden is a confusing brand to follow. Since Alden lets retailers customize their own shoes and boots, there are hundreds of "models," so it is very hard to keep track of them. Even the "Alden stores" carry only a percentage of models. But if we can somehow make it easier for posters to get this information, the thread will be improved.
I have on pairs I've worn a ton. Alden's heel counters are very flat and unforgiving. I've personally found English shoes to have a lot more curvature to their heels. It probably doesn't help that I have a little boney bump on my heels.

Not only a great collection, but a lot of these shoes are pretty uncommon
Does the unlined PTB have an antique welt? May I ask where you picked those up, they look pretty new!
Thank you sir!
Yes and it looks great, just got them from Leffot....get'em while there hot, I would guess they will sell quickly
